Cenit

Our Icon wine takes its name from the highest point in the sky. Every December 21, the southern hemisphere experiences the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. That is the day the sun reaches its zenith (Cenit in Spanish) over our vineyard, and we celebrate by making the final blend, which aims to express the synergy of the best characteristics of each variety selected for this wine.

Tasting Notes

Of deep violet-red colour with ruby rims, this 2014 Cenit has a more austere and mysterious expression than its former versions. It is elegant and complex on the nose, showing forest fruits such as blueberries and redcurrants, mineral touches, dry fruits such asand spices like grey pepper, along with gentle notes of violets that make a great closure to this wine.
It feels elegant and deep on the palate, with notes of sour cherries and wild raspberries that show up to complement this complex wine from Colchagua. Its vibrant acidity and great structure allow predicting a nice ageing and a long-lasting life.
